Unique Aspect

Yadokai was originally a mass collaboration with Black Friars and Hanging Bat in Edinburgh, Nanban in London and ourselves - bringing chefs, bars and breweries together to create something incredible. The result is a Sake-inspired beer brewed, with both Scottish and Japanese ingredients, at our farmhouse brewery in Somerset!

This beer was then racked into Bourbon barrels and set aside to develop various micro-oxidation character over 4 years. This is Yadokai the sequel, and there’s a strong case to say it’s better than the original...

Food Pairings

Yadokai has so many elements to pair with from sharp yuzu to sweet alcohol to seaweed umami. The time in barrels has meant that there is a distinct sherry note throughout and has brought out more salinity. Umami is the defining character of the beer and as such umami dishes, particularly Asian-inspired, compliment incredibly well. Pair up with Ramen, Okonomiyaki, Tacoyaki, Gyoza for lots of complimentary flavours while the beer lifts the fattiness associated with these dishes.
